Of all the lenses that I considered keepers in the past, I have sold about 3/4 of them so I dont feel qualified to this task. One thing that surprises me is to see at least one lens among somebody's keepers that I couldnt buy to that somebody cos I hadnt got money at that time .

Maybe if I had one of the new zeiss 85 f1,4 or 100 f2 macro, a 31 or 77limited or a voigtlander 125 macro I would consider them keepers cos they are money in the bank and they can only increase their value. I predict that the voigtlander will cost twice the money it costs now in 3-5 years.
I paid US$639 for my voigtlander 125 (and I seen mention of people paying less), Cameraquest now has some 'ex-demo' ones for US$1000 so perhaps not as long as 3-5 years??? (I remember thinking I wish I had the money to buy a few and put them away

I will never sell the 125 or the 180. I regardly wish I didnt sell the 'a' 50mm macro and will replace it before the end of the year. (hmm, I often think I prefer zooms, but 3 keepers are all primes
